We invite everyone to share their opinions and examples of what an #InclusiveRecovery means to them, moving forward. Paintings, poems, arts, quotes, anecdotes, simple thought-tweets are all welcome throughout August as we build our international conversation about how to revive the arts in the most inclusive way possible!

Just use the hashtag #InclusiveRecovery and we’ll be archiving everyone’s contributions.
